hey guys, i'm a dedicated fl studio user, and i've decided to get a controller for triggering drums mostly and maybe some samples.
I've been reading up on the mdp 26 and considering buying one.
Just a few concerns:
Is it easy to setup the fpc with the mpd and insert the sounds i want to use and start recording?
Does it have any knows issues or bugs?
Would you reccomend it for fl studio
I use the MPD26 with FL Studio and love it. However, I did a few things before getting it to work the way I want it to.
1. Install the MPD editor that you can download from Akai's website if it doesn't come in the box.
2. Change your pads to correspond to the midi notes you want them to. I pretty much just have my MPD FL Studio preset to chromatic. This is very useful when you also want to use the Fruity Slicer and quickly map out notes from a 4 bar loop sliced into 16 pieces.
3. Map your notes on an empty FPC and save that as your default. You're good to go.
4. Purchase Poise. It's like an FPC only much better in my opinion as it allows you to adjust start/stop points of samples from within the plugin instead of having to open Edison and save a new version of the file. The only difficulty of this method (easy-medium) is linking Poise to your mixer.
